Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
Your device conforms to European Union (EU) standards that limit
human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by radio and
telecommunications equipment. These standards prevent the sale of
mobile devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was
0.903 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much
lower, as the device has been designed to emit only the RF energy
necessary to transmit a signal to the nearest base station. By
automatically emitting lower levels when possible, your device
reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
For more information about the SAR and related EU standards, visit
the Samsung website.
